~ Fresh Air & Sunshine ~
You'll find plenty of that at Mike's! What you won't find are pesticides, herbicides, and the unsustainable practices that make those and other chemicals necessary to put fresh food in the supermarket. We're not certified organic. We hold a higher standard, relying on hard work and Mother Nature... for that, we know you never tasted anything so good!
~ Our Pledge to You ~
We won't spray weed killers. Sure they kill the weeds, but they get inside the produce, then inside you! We do our best to control weeds by hand & machine. Sometimes, the weeds get the better of us, but your berries and veggies will be chemical free!
We won't spray bug killers. By our thinking, If a chemical kills bugs, then it can't be good for people either. We take care of the bugs by hand too. If a crop has a bug problem we can't fix, our solution isn't to bath it in chemicals so we can sell it. We plow it under and let nature take its course.
We won't use oil-based fertilizers. Chemical fertilizers really boost production, but they can also hurt the sustainability of our soil and diminish the quality of our food. We feed our soil with things like worm castings and organic nutrients from Espoma.
We won't use city water. We have our own chemical-free pond replenished from the sky. So, our irrigation is free of the chemicals & contaminants that can be found in processed tap water.
We won't sell produce we haven't grown ourselves. How often do you know where your berries and veggies were grown? Maybe never? To provide you with the highest quality possible, our berries & vegetables will always be fresh grown right here on the farm and NEVER trucked in.
